How to Write a Winning NSF CAREER Proposal (2020 competition)

Please note that this webinar applies to the NSF CAREER competition with proposals due July 2020. This webinar was originally recorded in October 2019. Now that the new CAREER solicitation and the new PAPPG have been released, we are in the process of updating the webinar to reflect these changes.
This webinar will:

  • cover the basics of the NSF CAREER proposal
  • discuss how to plan your CAREER project and position yourself to be competitive
  • discuss how to write the proposal, section by section, with special attention on what each section needs to accomplish and how to avoid common mistakes
(You can purchase individual access here. If your institution purchased institutional access at, follow the instructions provided by your institution to receive access at no additional cost.)

Subscribing to this course will allow unlimited streaming of the course video until the expiration date of August 1, 2020. You will also be able to download and keep the slides as well as other materials, including annotated excerpts from successful CAREER proposals, and articles that go into more depth on specific CAREER-related topics.
